Whether due to injury, surgery, or other trauma to the skin, scars can be cosmetic concerns for many men and women. Fortunately, there are a number of nonsurgical treatment options that can significantly improve or even eliminate the appearance of scars.

If scarring is cause for a lowered self-image and is getting in the way of looking and feeling your absolute best, schedule a consultation with Dr. Krant to learn more about the most appropriate treatment options to best fit your needs and goals.

Scar Improvement Methods

The type and size of your scars will determine which cosmetic treatment option may be the best for you. Indented acne scars, for instance, can be improved with injectable dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® or Restylane®, whereas pigmented scars may be improved more effectively laser treatments.

Scar Improvement Results

While there are surgical options available that can remove severe scarring, most moderate scars can be visibly reduced or even eliminated without requiring surgery. Most men and women see ideal results after multiple laser treatment sessions, and those results can be permanent or very long-lasting. Although dermal fillers will need to be readministered 6 to 12 months after your initial treatment, each appointment typically takes less than 20 minutes and requires no downtime afterward.

For more information about how you can improve the appearance of scarring, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jessica Krant of Art of Dermatology, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
